CBSE CTET Answer Key 2021 to Release Soon – Passing Criteria Explained

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to release the CTET answer key 2020-21 anytime soon. Once the CBSE CTET answer key 2021 releases, candidates can check and download the answer key from the CBSE CTET official website – www.ctet.nic.in

CTET or the Central Teacher Eligibility Test for July 2020 cycle was conducted on 31st January 2021. The exam was held in 135 cities across the country. Looking back at the previous answer key release trends, CBSE is expected to release the answer key between 15th February to 20th February 2021. However, the Board has not announced any definitive date for the release of CTET answer key 2021.

This to-be-released preliminary answer key should not be confused with the final answer key. Candidates must note that it won’t be considered for the preparation of the final CTET result 2021. As and when the preliminary CTET answer key is released, candidates will have the provision to file objection/s to answers they deem incorrectly judged, within a certain timeframe. To raise objections, candidates would then be required to pay a fee of Rs. 1000 per question through credit or debit card.

After considering all the objections received on the CBSE CTET Answer Key 2021, the exam authority will release the final Answer Key. The final CTET result will later be released based on the final answer key.

CBSE CTET Answer Key 2021 – Passing Criteria

The passing criterion of the CTET examination is divided into two categories. For General candidates, the passing criteria is 60% or more marks, whereas for OBC/SC/ST candidates, the minimum passing criterion is 55%. 

Category Minimum Qualifying Percentage Passing Marks

CTET Certificate 2021

Those candidates who manage to score the CTET 2021 passing marks or designated Cut off marks will be awarded both the CTET scorecard 2021 and CTET Certificate. The candidates presented with the CTET Certificate 2021 will then become eligible to apply for teacher recruitment in Kendriya Vidyalaya, Navodaya Vidyalaya, and Tribal Schools. The CTET certificate will remain valid for up to 7 years. This means that the candidates receiving the CTET certificate this year can apply for teacher recruitment till 2027.

Besides, State Government/Local Bodies and Aided Schools shall consider the TET, which will be conducted by the State Government. Conversely, the State Government can also consider the CTET if it decides not to conduct the State TET.
